    Since few weeks, I cannot open attached .xls file, for the temporary
    directory is not found. I bypass it by saving the xls file in a a folder and
    then open it from there. It does't work if saved on desktop. All other
    attached files, pps or world, are ok

  2. Are all your Windows Updates current?
    I seem to recall there was an update for IE8 a couple of months
    ago which fixed the failure to open attachments.
